Eating Healthy in a World of Processed Foods

 Too much of a good thing can be bad‐ at least that’s what some people believe. We’re living in 
an age now where food is so unbelievably accessible that we find ourselves scoffing under our 
breath if we’re in a fast food line for more than sixty‐seconds. The speed and convenience is 
great at times‐ especially for busy moms and people running from job one to job two. But too 
much of this has contributed to a worldwide epidemic of obesity, which is growing worse with 
Learning to balance healthy living in a world of processed foods isn’t impossible. While combo 
meals (what a deal!) and tempting propaganda can sometimes make healthy feel unattainable, 
it’s not. It just takes a little planning ahead of time and reinforcement of better choices. So what 
are some things you can do to eat healthy amidst a world of processed foods?

  • Steam, Bake or Broil‐ If you take a food item in its rawest form, it has the potential to stay healthy.  But the way you prepare it can be a deal breaker.  Stay away from food that is fried or cooked in a batter.  This applies to vegetables too, not just meats.
  • Plan Ahead-Choose a day or days of the week and designate them as food preparation days. Use these days to make several days’ worth of healthy foods to bring with you to work, school, or wherever. That way, when lunch hour rolls around, you won’t be tempted with a Snack/Small chops run. 
  • Get it from Akumbo Mills‐ When you plan to cook meals yourself, order your food items from With Akumbo Mills you’re sure of getting food items sourced from verified farms that use organic manure, we process our grains, tubers and/or pulses wholly, and we do all these in an hygienic manner.
